Bill Clinton v. George W. Bush?
I got this releae by e-mail from the Joe Sestak campaign:
Clinton Prosperity and Jobs vs. Bush Deficits and Recession?
[. . .] On the eve of President Clinton's visit to Pennsylvania, a close look at Congressman Toomey's choices and the Wall Street values that have led him to support the failed policies that have devastated Pennsylvania's economy show that his mindset would hurt Pennsylvania families all over again given the opportunity.
According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, President Clinton's fiscally responsible budgets and focus on tax breaks for working families created 87,000 new jobs per year in Pennsylvania over eight years. President Bush's fiscally irresponsible budgets and focus on tax breaks for the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans turned the largest budget surplus in history into massive, big government deficits. And during the entire Toomey-Bush period, Pennsylvania created a grand total of 67,000 jobs - fewer jobs for working families in eight years than President Clinton's priorities produced in just one year.
This is an interesting approach. Obviously Dems can't really brag about the Obama economy right now. Can they turn the 2010 elections into a Bush v. Bill Clinton affair? We'll see. Good place to start - repealing the Bush tax cuts.
Speaking for me only
